Mine all mine! Hahahahahaaaa!!

Enough evil laughing. Thank you Shane for taking me up on my offer and for making these from scratch for me! I can't imagine not liking these. There's nothing subtle about these big beautiful brutes! Gonna put big bands and big pouches on 'em and shoot big steel! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I'll get a review out after I've had a chance to shoot them. Stay tuned!

So there have been a few different names suggested and references to knights in this thread. The obvious choice would be to call them Excalibur. That would be fitting, but too obvious and easy. I did a little research and this is what I WILL BE CALLING THEM. I am not suggesting that this is what Island Made has, or should, call them. Again, this is for my own amusement and not an official name, but what I am calling them. No one but Shane should determine what to call the frames he has created.

This is fitting because one of my all time favorite pass times is vermin/pest control with an air rifle. Mostly rats and starlings. And since to me these frames just scream hunter to me, the one with the more angular forks and pointed bottom shall henceforth be known to me as VERMINFATE!

To differentiate the frame with the rounded forks and bottom of grip, I named it after a sword described as being made from celestial bronze and regular mortal steel. Different materials, but the image is fitting. Plus I just think the name sounds tough and cool (and this is after all a tough and cool frame!). I will call that one BACKBITER!

A bit silly perhaps, but we're supposed to be having fun here!!
